Mighty Simba

Simba is one of the senior residents at the ADI Wildlife Sanctuary. He’s a bit wobbly on his feet these days and is treated for arthritis in his hind legs but there’s no doubt he still looks magnificent. His arthritis is a result of his early years in a cramped circus cage in Peru before ADI rescued him and his constant companion Rey. Earlier this year we added extra steps to his platform to help him up and down after a hospital visit when his arthritis seemed to be catching up. Simba ignored them, leaping up and down as he’d always done – that’s his choice! An old warrior living with dignity, home in Africa, in Guibord-Sprague Habitat at the ADIWS.
